Neptune is the first dominant in Tristan Thompson’s astral chart. In the following paragraph, we shall indicate the significance of this fact:
This planet is the quintessential symbol of individual receptivity and the fundamental reactions of the unconscious, including the collective unconscious. Opposed to Saturn, which is the principle of form, structure, and limitation, Neptune is a principle of dissolution. It concerns any effort to encompass the greatest variety of factors, any tendency to surround and blend all the narrow, individual points of view into a single, universal sea.
Psychologically, the Neptunian effect is expressed as an exceptional psychic flexibility and extreme pliancy. Tristan Thompson thus displays considerable receptivity and availability. He feels a need for unity, a need to be related. He is also deeply aware of the importance of dreaming, and, negatively, may be prone to delusions.
At certain times, Tristan Thompson is overwhelmed by a feeling of subtle confusion related to a need for “something else.” When his well-being is disturbed this way, he either yields to a sort of passive, apathetic dissatisfaction, or loses himself in the search for an imaginary world, perhaps to escape or plunge into bliss.
Tristan Thompson is sometimes captivated by a need for illusion; he would like to experience change through the intermediary of events which are vaster than consciousness and would take him far from routine and daily banality. Nevertheless, usually these fantastic dreams only make him all the more painfully aware of the realities of everyday life. His spirit and emotions emerge confused, and his will is sometimes weakened.
The second dominant in Tristan Thompson’s astral chart is Jupiter. This is significant because Jupiter is the planet of luck, expansion, and abundance. Thompson’s Jupiter placement indicates that he is lucky, has the ability to expand his horizons, and is abundant in many ways.
In traditional astrology, Jupiter has always been considered as the Great Benefactor, the planet of luck and success such as personal fortune, social prominence, professional prestige, high political position. The Jupiterian bounty is peerless! In psychological terms, this planet has a much vaster significance. As the biggest planet in the solar system, it does preside over the process of personal expansion, interpreted to be fitting into society better and finding an appropriate match between one’s individual ambitions and the aspirations of the group.
This growth is accompanied by a feeling of self-confidence, which, in turn, buoys up an even greater externalization and expansion of the ego – hence the planet’s flattering reputation. But this snowball effect (Jupiter smiles and the world smiles with you), in which social skills magnify confidence and boldness reaps many rewards, betrays the negative side of Jupiter: extreme and excess.
Although grandeur was the characteristic of the “king of the gods,” errors of judgment, poor taste, and sometimes selfishness and pride are also likely to be part of the Jupiterian package. It is important to note that the extension of the ego may be a form of escape; it is tempting to hide behind one’s popularity and social success, which are fairly easy to obtain, rather than be really demanding with oneself. The Jupiterian has a tendency to amplify qualities out of compensation, to avoid seeing weaknesses and flaws. As a result, Tristan Thompson must be aware of the risk of over-identifying with your social mask, which would cause you to neglect your inner self and deep nature.
Venus is the third dominant in Tristan Thompson’s astral chart. This fact indicates that Tristan Thompson is strong-willed, determined, and ambitious. He is also a natural leader, and people are drawn to his charisma and confidence.
In traditional astrology, Venus (or Aphrodite, her Greek name) is the planet of love. A source of universal attraction, this planet corresponds to the original urge which bonds two human beings together in love. Venus is thus both the magnetism which brings human beings together (not lust, which is symbolized by Mars, but the object which attracts lust) and the gift of love. This ambiguity is interpreted astrologically by the fact that Venus rules two houses of the zodiac. In Taurus, Venus symbolizes the awakening to bodily lust, and in Libra, the bond of marriage. As a result, Venus may take on very different aspects depending on the individual’s degree of awareness.
Likewise, this ambiguity explains Aphrodite’s equivocal conduct in Greek myth and her innumerable couplings and motherhood. Depending on the legend, she may embody brutal, passionate love (with Anteros), the wisdom of the heart which rescues from passion (Harmonia); she also becomes tenderness and purity (with Adonis), pure sexuality (with Eros), a transforming energy (with Vulcan), etc. Mistress of the Arts, she represents beauty, understanding, and peace.
Psychologically, individuals under the influence of Venus are struggling with their love instincts. This is why Tristan Thompson cannot conceive of living without a personal emotional relationship to someone else and sometimes fears solitude and the encounter with himself. Tristan Thompson is extremely attractive to others and is a creator and artistic genius who seems to imbue all he touch with beauty and harmony. His artistic skills are obvious to the people around him and may be applied to career endeavors.
Pleasure, outings, seduction, love, and a thriving but sometimes superficial social life are the hallmarks of Tristan Thompson’s life.
The sixth house is an area of the sky which is especially important to Tristan Thompson. In the following paragraph, we shall explain the general meaning of this fact.
According to tradition, the sixth house is related to health and celebrity Tristan Thompson’s relationship to their body. It is thus related to illness, hygiene, nutrition, and bodily care. More specifically, this area rules the various failures which Thompson encounters and accumulates in the course of their evolution, which are sometimes expressed as physical disorders like aches and pains, digestive problems, etc.
This area should thus be associated with the need faced by any individual to examine their ego, in order to consciously reorient and transform the behavior they have unconsciously adopted. Should Thompson refuse this reorientation process or try to flee from it, physical discomfort or suffering may set in as a sort of signal – the proof that the impurities of their ego are obstructing the natural flow of their life.
The difficulty Thompson faces concerns their personal growth as a member of society. It shows that they are not yet ready to approach others appropriately, that they must tone down an inflated ego or beef up an insecure, weak ego. The importance of this area in their theme indicates that experiences related to work, duty, health care, self-transformation, and the continuous harvesting and re-planting of their energies and ego are fundamental and may have a major impact on their destiny.
Traditionally, astrologers associated this house with humbly serving others. We interpret this to mean that a person who has not consciously begun the work of reorienting their personality may be doomed to remain the slave of thankless tasks, to toil at subordinate functions deprived of privilege.
The fourth house is an area of the sky which is especially important in Tristan Thompson’s theme. In the following paragraph, we shall explain the general meaning of this fact.
